Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this sequel ot Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive , Mackay, a Minneapolis envelope-maker, issues a flood of no-nonsense business advice in the form of original aphorisms and short, germane examples, all delivered with high spirits and ever-bubbling humor. ``The sale begins when the customer says yes,'' he declares. ``ASTONISH them . . . get it there before you said you would . . . '' Mackay offers detailed programs to motivate customers and employees, and tells success stories of consumer needs perceived and fulfilled--pantyhose shops, walk-in medical clinics. He also stresses the importance of entrepreneurial courage, such as his own insistence on lengthy titles for his books. First serial to Success magazine; BOMC and Fortune Book Club alternates. (Feb.)
Library Journal
Like Mackay's previous best seller, How To Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive ( LJ 4/15/88), this work is filled with anecdotes and typical Mackay tips. Beginning with how to get a job, he uses hints and stories to show how to get ahead in the business world. The work is composed of 85 lessons broken into seven groupings, with each lesson usually only a couple of pages in length. Each grouping relates to specific aspects of a business career, e.g. ``Harvey Mackay's Short Course on Getting Started'' or ``Working Your Way Up'' or ``Running the Show.'' In addition there are 35 ``Quickies,'' usually a page or less in length, that explicate a point, e.g. ``Find One Good Idea, and You Can Use It Forever.'' Sure to be a best seller. Recommended for all business collections that include popular works. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/1/89.-- -- Michael D. Kathman, St. John's Univ., Collegeville, Minn.
